"Very Cool!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm a long time user of Hotline in OS 9 and I was worried that there wouldn't be a satisfactory alternative in OS X, but Heidrun is just as good and probably better than version 1.8.4. Stable with great features. Navigation could be a little better, but overall this is extremely useful software.

"Best OS X Client Yet!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A couple of suggestions: Would be nice to have a simple folder view (not column view) for files. And I could get rid of my HL clients entirely if there were a tracker module. Thanks for a great app!

.. this piece of crap is free. Though it is a very reactive and snappy soft, all has been done to make it annoying to use.

"This is THE best"

Alright I just had to add another remark here. One feature that has been lacking in other clients FOREVER is here!! This may seem like such a minor thing...but it has always been a major pain...you can now upload folders!!! AND you can select multiple files to upload!!! NICE!!!

Since going to X I have experimented with pitbull, frogblast, and heidrun. This is by far the best and has many of the features we all like. Slightly different interface, but if you are used to panther/x interface it's not a big deal really. Looks great and works great. Has an auto re-connect feature...and all the goods of the others!!! Would highly recommend over all other clients...

"brilliant!"

i've always used frogblast since getting a new mac with osx, but this is even better imho. I love the look and feel along with the way the menus work in news /threaded+plain. Reliability is top and this performs perfectly with my server, unlike HLClient! Frogblast is cool still, but i prefer this..

"Seems to work okay in Panther..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
...although now i can't upload a file unless there are no other files in the folder I want to upload to. I do like the column view very much though - making it work more like the Finder would be a plus.

My previous report on key commands not working apepars to have been fixed.
